“I had a manly feel to my loft, I knew I had to tone it down a bit,” Lowe told SpareFoot during a recent interview.
For example, Lowe had his football jersey from Kansas State framed and hung on the wall of his self-described “total bachelor pad.”
“After a few months living in there she felt like she was staying with me at my place, so we decided to buy our first home,” Lowe said.
On the Move Again
That was about two years ago, and now the Lowes are already moving again.
“We had a beautiful little house that we loved, but we were outgrowing it,” Lowe said, “It isn’t just the two of us now. We have the baby on the way and we know we want more kids so we thought it was a good time to upgrade.”
The Lowes are staying in the same neighborhood near downtown Dallas, known locally as the M Streets, but in a bigger Craftsman-style home. “We really upgraded,” Lowe said.
While the couple isn’t moving far, it doesn’t mean it’s a breeze. “You never realize how much stuff you have until you move, and how many boxes you need and how much help you need. It always takes a lot longer than you expect it too,” Lowe said. Lowe said he has moved about 10 or more times in his life. “Each time it is just terrible,” Lowe said.

A Helping Hand
To help make things a little bit easier, Lowe turned to SpareFoot to provide full-service storage for some items that they won’t be putting into their new home right away. Full-service storage providers pick up the items you want to store and return them to your home when you want to retrieve them at a later date.
“We’ve got some furniture and clothes that, for whatever reasons you don’t want to get rid of them but when you move to a new place you don’t have anywhere to put it,” Lowe said.
Because of Lowe and his wife’s busy schedules, hiring a full-service storage provider through SpareFoot was a simpler option than taking their own stuff to a traditional storage facility.
“Life is chaotic to say the least. Catherine and I are always on the go. We both have businesses in Dallas we run and we still travel doing things in the entertainment industry,” Lowe said. “The idea of someone coming to help with our stuff and store it for us, it is a tremendous time saver and energy saver for me.”

The Key to Happiness
Maybe the next hardest part of moving into a house is agreeing with your spouse about what to keep and what not to keep. Lowe said he is fortunate that he and Catherine see eye-to-eye more often than not.
“Luckily we have the same design style, we both have the same ideas as far as interior design goes,” Lowe said.
Lowe’s advice for men moving into a new home with their spouse?
“Ideally you’d like to say compromise is key. I’d probably have to direct my advice to the men and say to make sure your woman is happy and life will be easier.”
That leaves just one more question: Will the famed K-State jersey end up in storage or find a spot on the wall?
“That is to be determined,” Lowe said, “I’m hoping we can find a spot for it.”
